The Astron Energy fuel company near Milnerton is expected to make an announcement today after yesterday's suspected underground fuel leak north-east of the city.
Various roads in the vicinity of Plattekloof, Milnerton and Bloubergstrand were subsequently closed as a precaution.
Some of them have already been re-opened last night.
It's not clear
at this stage if the reported leak has been contained yet.
The City of Cape Town says, although it is assisting the company in this regard, they will not be releasing any information.
The city's traffic and fire departments were quickly deployed near the refinery yesterday and are still assisting."https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p235x350/120091314_3562889090430116_3587072711987898258_n.jpg?_nc_cat=106&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=aVo3ZjfRlQMAX_7zeWW&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&tp=6&oh=fc287bedebcebb47687f51b27d5abfb3&oe=5F92311D"
